Julian honors our nation’s birthday with a salute to the men and women who made our country great, both domestically and militarily. For more than twenty years, Julian residents, their friends and parade lovers from all over have lined up at on the town’s main street to wave their flags, cheer the marching bands, salute the Marine Color Guard, and carry a giant American Flag down the thoroughfare. Antique cars, vintage tractors, belly dancers, World War 2 Submariners, and several comedy entries will appear to complete a fun well rounded hometown parade. Some parade “goers“ set out chairs the night before to enable them to get a good place. Main Street closes to traffic at 9 A.M. Follow directions to the nearest parking lot. Public toilets are available at the bank parking lot and behind the town hall.
